Tour of the National Museum of Women in the Arts with Ginny Treanor & Orin Zahra
November 30 | 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Come join us to tour the reopened National Museum of Women in the Arts! NMWA is the first museum in the world solely dedicated to championing women through the arts. NMWA undertook a top-to-bottom renovation from 2021 to 2023. The building’s first full renovation since 1987, this restoration project honors the structure’s history while improving its interior spaces, mechanical systems, and exterior envelope. We are very fortunate to have a curator-led tour with Senior Curator Ginny Treanor, and Associate Curator Orin Zahra!
Current exhibitions include “The Sky’s the Limit,” showcasing never-before-exhibited contemporary sculptures that dangle from the ceiling, cascade down walls, and extend far beyond their footprint on the gallery floor: recent acquisitions and never-before-exhibited works include Sonya Clark, Beatriz Milhazes, Cornelia Parker, Mariah Robertson, Shinique Smith, and Joana Vasconcelos. “Remix: The Collection,” showcases familiar collection favorites as well as never-before-exhibited recent acquisitions: Remix continues to reject outmoded and gender-based art hierarchies.
